ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING PANEL SESSION: Metallic Materials Qualification and Component Certification

Tuesday, May 8
10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Metallic Additive Manufacturing has the opportunity to provide the aerospace industry many benefits including component light weighting, increased system performance, reduction in component lead time and increased aircraft readiness.

Unlike forging and casting, which have had decades to create and fine-tune best manufacturing and testing practices to ensure materials and components will achieve the intended design performance and life, Additive Manufacturing is relatively new and the manufacturing, qualification and certification processes are still being developed.

This panel discussion of global Additive Manufacturing experts across industry and governing bodies, will review the following:

  • Current efforts to develop these qualification and certification practices
  • Success stories of OEMs who have qualified and flown AM parts
  • The most pressing challenges and risks that still need to be resolved, and how can industry and governing bodies work together to best define these practices.

Audience questions will be encouraged.
